Earlier this month, Roosevelt University hosted their Fall 2019 Gerald Fogelson Forum. The Habitat Company's President, Matt Fiascone, and Cinespace Chicago Film Studios' President, Alex Pissios, were featured speakers for this guest panel, and the main topic of the discussion centered on Ogden Commons. A unique mixed-use, mixed-income development coming to an opportunity zone in North Lawndale, the development - from a team including PNC Bank, Mount Sinai Hospital, Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, The Habitat Company and Chicago Housing Authority - will include hundreds of residences as well as office and retail space.
A game changer for the community, Ogden Commons is a unique joint venture of healthcare, media and real estate with big plans for making a difference. Located just 10 minutes from the Chicago Loop, the area has proximity, transportation, and community partners that are committed to economic redevelopment – without gentrification.
